Today Anne chats with Julie Smith, who you may know from her delightful travel blog Drive on the Left. Julie is an enthusiastic reader. She’s also an American expat living in London, and while this sounds awfully glamorous, Anne was surprised to hear that while her London life has its joys, it presents challenges to her reading life as well.
If you'd love to travel the world and eat great food vicariously, you'll want to connect with Julie on twitter, facebook, and especially instagram.
